weekend without a husband

what else to do when your baby finally sleeps and your husband is gone golfing for the weekend...

eat gelato and watch chick flicks, tlc and hgtv...
although i do admit i watched the laker game too:)

3 day weekend

for the long memorial day weekend, we drove up to simi valley to visit our friends, luke & alyssa, who have the cutest little baby girl:) ollie looked like a giant next to her! ollie's bedtime routine is still completely thrown off, but it was well worth it! we had a great time! and it was so good to hang out with friends.

more mealtime fun

this boy loves to eat...
and eat anything, he will! he got over "baby food" and now eats whatever we eat, just in bite size form- peas, chicken, fish, spinach, bananas, avocados, broccoli, squash...
i hope this doesn't change as he grows up.

ollie update

i took ollie into the pediatrician today. as we waited, he clung to me a little unsure of the other little boy in the waiting room. he was about the same age as ollie. but as soon as he left, ollie jumped down and started playing with all the toys and kept crawling out the door into the hallway to check out all the people. then another boy came in, but this time it was a 3 year old. ollie stared for a while, then kept crawling over to the poor boy wanting to climb all over him.

then we were called back and it was time for the most traumatic part of every dr's visit- being weighed! ollie does not like this part at all. he does not like getting his clothes or diaper changed and then you expect him to lay still! he cried and squirmed and would hardly let go of we only have an estimate of his height and weight: ~30 inches long and ~22 pounds, which now puts him in the 75 percentile.

so the worst was shots this time, but he did have his little finger pricked for a blood sample. it's funny how upset he gets when we tried to weigh and measure him, but not even a flinch from the little buddy, when he got his finger pricked and he was pretty fascinated with the bandaid on his finger! and when the dr came in he crawled right to her and flirted away. she said ollie is doing well.

and for your enjoyment, here are some photos- his hair sometimes curls up after a bath...he really likes to chew on my lens cap.

mother's day

i always look forward to mother's day weekend, because my mom's birthday is usually close to it and it means vanessa flies down and we can spend the weekend celebrating as a family.

i love giving presents and i love wrapping presents even more. i was quite proud of my newspaper and brown paper wrappings. i was extra excited because this year was my first mother's day and let's be honest, as much as i love giving presents, i also love getting presents:) ollie even made me a card in sunday school! (they took pictures of the babies in the nursery and glued them to a card)

it was a great weekend and i am blessed to have such a great mom, who sets a wonderful example for me.
